On Thursday 12th December, Clapham and Collinge Solicitors hosted their third ‘Christmas Extravaganza’ event in support of our charity.
With a red carpet entrance and an elegantly decorated office, the much-anticipated event of the season featured plenty of festive fun, including roulette with professional croupiers, Christmas canapés from 7 Surrey Street, jazz with Manhattan Dusk, followed by raffle and auction.
We are delighted that the event raised over £1,300 to support our work to bring hope, opportunity, stability and independence to local children, young people and families.
Louis Hilldrup-Boorman, Marketing Manager at Clapham & Collinge said: ”I am delighted with the success of our third Christmas Extravaganza, which has certainly grown since its humble conception in 2017. Based on the feedback we’ve received, guests had a jolly good time and we raised a fantastic amount for The Benjamin Foundation. Thanks to the local businesses and the firm’s professional contacts for the incredibly generous raffle and auction prize donations, and a special thanks to DACS Design, Smith & Pinching and Home Buyer and Seller Advisory Services for sponsoring this year’s event”.
Chris Elliott, Marketing and Fundraising Manager at The Benjamin Foundation said: ”What a wonderful evening it was – we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are once again hugely grateful for the amazing support of Clapham and Collinge! You’ve created a fantastic event with a real festive flavour and the opportunity for us to raise money and meet supporters old and new. Please accept a big thank you from me on behalf of The Benjamin Foundation”.

Our children love the Forest School scheme - the sessions are always in demand and it is amazing to see what they get out of it.
